Final Thoughts from Speedway...
Well...we are just weeks away from several area shows which will signal the start of the car show/cruise-in season in the Midwestern United States. I'm looking forward to several, including a new event our club will be hosting on May 15th called, "Wheels for Williams". All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Williams Syndrome Association. Williams Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that affects about 1 in every 10,000 births worldwide. The disorder consists of a microdeletion on one of the number 7 chromosomes which causes characteristic heart and circulatory issues, learning delays and disabilities, and unique personality characteristics.
I know a bit about WS because our oldest son, who is 18, and our 9 year old adopted son both have WS. For more information about WS, check out www.williams-syndrome.org. For more information about our event, check out the facebook event page at: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/event.php?eid=263280349717
If you live within driving distance of Losantville, Indiana, or will be in the area on May 15th, I would love for you to come to the event. If you are at the event, make sure you find me and introduce yourself!
